The Naismith Award has released their Midseason Top 30 list.

The Naismith Award is one of college basketball’s Player of the Year awards. At first glance, the list looks pretty solid, as they included Lamar Patterson, Sean Kilpatrick and Xavier Thames, which the Wooden Award did not do.

But in reality, who is on the list doesn’t really matter. Doug McDermott is going to win the away. Everyone else is just competing for second place.

    Why is Marcus Smart on this list? He has been absolutely terrible even before the suspension. He may be the worst shooter I’ve ever seen.

    Who chooses these players? TWO members of the Wichita State squad (Cleanthony Early and point guard Fred VanVleet). These guys are brilliant!! And consistent, because, the same two made to the list of top 25 for the Oscar Robertson Award as well. So Shocks. Your undefeated season is no fluke!
